Unexpectedly Wonderful
Infectious, joyful, makes you want to move and celebrate. I love the modern touches to traditional beats. Very accessible for a global title. Mala's voice is lovely and the arrangements cool. I'm getting 2 as presents!

Sublime....
Crisp, clear while somewhat devotional in its delivery, “Mala Ganguly” is a sweet embrace into the mantra and into bhakti yoga…it will touch your heart, stir your soul and play well whether as background music in your home or yoga studio, driving through the city in your car…it is a piece to be cherished…. to be listened to. It will penetrate your heart and drive you deeper into that which you hold sacred.

Love this album!
After purchasing "Yoga Heart Healing" by David Vito & "Prana - Healing Tones for Life" by David Vito & Mala Ganguly, it was only a matter of time before I had to rush and get this album too! If you really liked the "Prana - Healing Tones for Life" album then you will most likely want to have this in your collection as well (this album features some of the same songs but with chilled out beats behind them, instead of just ambient soundscapes). "Om Shanti" is one of my personal favorites... every time I listen to this song, it takes me to a special sacred space!

Devotional bliss
This CD is clearly a work born of genuine divine inspiration. One can feel Mala's union with spirit through the purity and clarity of her unique voice, and hear the passionate echo in the beautiful arrangments that accompany her. These are Hindu devotional compositions with a delightful touch of funk at their very best!
